DISCRIPTION

Gorda Vista has been built and furnished to high specifications. Construction was recently finished in August 2012. The villa has been designed to be the ideal vacation property, which makes the most of its beautiful location. It encompasses this with the concept of outdoor living.

The property is private and has a gated entrance. It is secluded and located on the mountainside surrounded by forested jungle and wildlife. It is at an altitude of 564ft above sea level with cooling breezes off the ocean and mountains. It is ideal for a family vacation, a couple for a honeymoon, romantic get away or an adventure vacation.

The entire ground floor has been cleverly designed to integrate the pool, deck, covered terrace, kitchen and lounge into one outdoor living space. It can be easily changed into separate outdoor and indoor spaces by simply closing the large glazed doors that are on two sides of the lounge wall.

The top floor has two bedrooms both with air-conditioning, on suite bathrooms and ocean view verandas. The master bedroom has a king size bed and large on suite bathroom with a sandstone walk in shower big enough for two. The second bedroom can be used for children or a couple, as it has two single beds that can be pushed together to make one king-size bed. There is also a comfortable queen-size convertible bed in the lounge.

The 45-foot lap pool with infinity edge overlooks Dominicalito Beach. It has a wider area adjacent to the house with two tiled sunken chairs and a raised table to relax in the pool water whilst sipping your cocktails and watching the sunset into the ocean.

Gorda Vista stands on a 5 acres of private tiered estate with a lower landscaped area with walking paths winding round over 100 different varieties of well tendered tropical plants, herbs and fruit trees which include Papayas, Star Fruit, Mangos, Lemons, Avocados, Mandarins, Pineapples, Oranges, Bananas, Plantains, Cashews, etc. These trees and plants are presently still young and being nurtured but if you find any herbs or fruit ready you are welcome to eat them.

The location of the property will make your vacation easy as the local stores, banks, restaurants and amenities are only a 15-minute drive away. There are a great variety of tours, activities and adventures for all ages and levels of excitement. They are all just a short drive away and can be booked and arranged by us.

Bed linen and towels for both bathroom and pool provided.

The villa is easy to reach with only a scenic 125 miles or 201 km drive from San Jose international airport (Juan Santamaria) on the newly constructed highways.

• You will need to rent a 4x4 vehicle to access the property and to enjoy the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica

Loved Gorda Vista

  • 5 of 5
Gorda Vista looked just like the pictures on the website, but of course more beautiful in person. We absolutely loved the place; it was perfect! The house was more than spacious enough for the two of us on our honeymoon. There was plenty of room to cook on site with the large indoor kitchen and a grill area outside. The house also has many different spaces available for relaxing. The house and pool were freshly cleaned. Neil was so welcoming, allowing us to follow him in car to the house and giving us a tour of the place upon arrival. He also offered great suggestions of things to do while in Costa Rica and places to eat in the area. We had great communication with Neil while planning our trip, which was very helpful and he was always available once we were at Gorda Vista, as well. We felt very safe at the home, being in a gated area, given the keys and provided with cell phones. We have stayed at resorts before, but after this stay at a rental home we will be choosing rental homes more often in the future. We truly enjoyed our stay at Gorda Vista and can’t wait to get back to Costa Rica. Thank you Neil for everything!

The place is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed 5 nights here for our honeymoon. I've stayed in amazing hotels and properties all over the world and this may have topped them all. The kitchen, furniture, bathrooms, pool, washer/dryer, landscaping are all top notch and very well maintained.

The views of the ocean from the patio, pool and living room are stunning. We really didn't want to leave any of the nights. The sounds of the jungle are very soothing and with all the lights out at night the stars pop out of the sky. The TV has 300 movies on a hard drive to watch, which was nice for lazy afternoons. Good quality iPOD dock as well, was great to have loud music - with no neighbors anywhere around it was fun to be loud.

The place is really secluded, you can't see any other properties. The dirt road to the property is easy (probably don't need 4x4 but better safe than sorry). It's only 5 minutes to get down to the main paved road. From there - you are right at Dominicalito Beach and it's only another 5 minutes to Dominical Beach. Plenty of cool restaurants and places to get groceries nearby. Day trip to Manuel Antonio, hike to an AMAZING waterfall, surf everyday - then back to the palace everything.

Neil is a class act, and a really cool guy. I love to meet people that take great pride in what they do. He told us everything we needed to know - including a great recommendation on where to buy fresh fish to cook (yum) and where to go to eat if we didn't want to cook. Directions were spot on and very easy to follow.

I'll return to Dominical and will rent this place from Neil again. Would recommend it to anyone.

Perfect House and Location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son (age 10) and I visited Gorda Vista in May and absolutely loved the house. First, as everyone else has mentioned, Neil is the perfect property manager. Not only was every detail provided prior to our visit, but during the trip he was easily reached via the house phones provided, and responded quickly. For our first time in the country it was very comforting to know he was close by and readily available if needed for questions or help.

The house completely exceeded all of our expectations. It is finished beautifully, stocked well and extremely comfortable. The landscaping is amazing, and we were lucky enough to enjoy a fresh pineapple from the garden, which was the best we have ever tasted. We enjoyed the pool every day and really appreciated the covered outside area, even when it rained in the evenings - SO RELAXING! Unfortunately, we did not get to see any monkeys while we were there, but did see some very interesting wildlife, including a toucan and a poison dart frog!

The house is well stocked for cooking and we enjoyed watching movies most nights. I would highly recommend this to families with 1-2 children or two couples. We will definitely be returning!

Awesome and Amazing - Would be an Understatement

  • 5 of 5
WOW - where do I start? Well, from the beginning. The property manager, Neil, is probably one of the most organized and responsive persons I have ever dealt with. The booking process is easy and straight-forward, and upon arrival in San Jose and during the drive to Dominical Neil's detailed instructions left no room for confusion or anxiety. Even though no less than two cell phones will be ready for you at the house, I suggest bringing an old GSM phone and buying a $10 phone card at the airport. That way you can be in touch with Neil during the drive.

So, now on to the first impression of the house and the Dominical area. The drive from the main road to the house is an adventure in itself. A beautiful ride through the jungle on a well-maintained dirt road, with a small creek crossing (hence the 4x4 necessity) was an exciting experience. The drive ends with a breath-taking view of the big gate, the house and the ocean behind it. We have rented nice properties in various parts of the world before, but Gorda Vista definitely makes you feel like you have arrived at a special place. Don't want to reveal too much here, so you can surprise yourself while exploring the house and the expansive property. It felt like we were in one of those celebrity photo shoots with the infinity pool, jungle surrounding and the open ocean view. The house and all the furnishings and accessories are high-quality and this certainly adds to the experience. Blending fruit/rum cocktails, grilling local fish and shrimp, swimming laps, exploring the garden and lazing on the terrace while being hypnotized by the view are only a few things that come to mind. The wildlife is all around you, including colorful and exciting sights and tranquilizing sounds throughout the day and amplifying at night. Bring binoculars and a good camera if you would like to see white-faced monkeys, toucans and a whole list of exotic yet friendly wild creatures.

Dominical, Uvita and Rio Baru area offer everything you could ever want on a vacation, you just need to open your mind and enjoy it all. Neil has all the suggestions and directions to the places to see and things to do, and his selection of recommendations is all spot-on. The Nayuca Waterfall horse-back tour is a must, as is the Hacienda Baru guided jungle tour if you're with kids.

We are a family of 4, with 2 kids age 10 and 11, and Gorda Vista was the perfect place for us. Thank you again, Neil. See you next year.

Nature Bound

  • 5 of 5
Gorda Vista has it all- the view, the privacy, delightful garden space & paths and the close proximity to the beach, you do need a 4x4. Our family enjoyed the nature setting of this home. Waking up to the sound birds and hauler monkeys following with the playful whiteface monkeys- so playful & curious and falling a sleep to the frogs & geckos. Our children 4 & 10, enjoyed the swimming pool- our son learnt to swim! This home is very private, surrounded by jungle and we felt very secure, we truly experienced this was home away from home! Dominical area has many fun activities to offer- surfing, horseback to the falls, pristine and unique beaches. Manuel Antonio national park & beaches are beautiful!
We've enjoyed reading our books on the wonderful sunny deck by the pool and in the shade of the outdoor living area, lounging ever so casually. Outdoor shower was very handy coming from beach excursions. BBQ area was great for home cooking with herbs near by to use. Fresh pineapple was our breakfast one morning. So fun and safe for children, we did not worry at all.
It was a sad day when we had to depart.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for some adventure or some R & R or both- Gorda Vista has it all!!!!
